My final year of university has been completed! I have had the most incredible 4 years at the Arts University Bournemouth, and I can't wait to embark upon my new journey as a professional illustrator.
I have spent the last few moths preparing for many exciting things, and soon they will all be actualised! I have started up my own donations page, created a campaign, and I have made a brand for myself. My work has been printed on materials that support sustainable living and sustainable companies, such as resuable tote bags, 100% cotton t-shirts, campaign posters, postcards, and hand-outs for potential clients. My message 'Keep Our Planet Blue, Love Our Oceans Clean' has run throughout this whole project, and it is something that I am immensely proud of.
This project hasn't just been about me and my success as an illustrator, or even whether my work is good enough- the message has been far beyond that. The deeper driving force within me that is to protect our ecosystems from destruction, has resonated within my whole being, and I find it occupying my every thought in the most wonderful way. To produce my final major-project on something that promotes the beautiful fragility and intrinsic value of nature has been an absolute privilege, and I am excited to be sharing many wonderful things with you in the future!
